Skyler is your everyday, average, hardworking Irish-American woman. She also just so happens to be an unimpressed reader. She has tired of the same stories, the same plot lines, the same characters. Sure, people mix it up a bit, change some names, and even the places, planets, or times, but it all ends the same. 
Sky is tired of the same old drivel printed into little packets of worthless literature. She wants, no... NEEDS something new! She wants to believe in her stories again, she wants to feel the thrill of reading something interesting... 
And then, she meets Zev: A handsome face, a charming smile... and a personality that makes Skyler want to shake him like an annoying little rag doll. He's constantly driving her to bouts of rage and violence... much in evidence in Zev's bruises and cocky smile... 
With Zev bothering Sky, whether its at her favorite little cafe, or even at work, can this would-be writer show Sky the way to imagine again? To believe in the power of he printed word... or will it all be a story book's tragic ending for them both?
